If you are looking for a quiet and secluded island with beautiful beaches where you can snorkel and scuba dive, this is the place for you. If you're looking for fun and exciting activities, you should look elsewhere. My husband and I visited at the beginning of April for our honeymoon and, while we enjoyed our time, we were a... More

After spending two weeks on a dive safari travelling south to Gan, we booked another week on the island before returning home. This was our third visit to Helengeli and as with the two previous visits it did not disappoint. Helengeli is small, basic and an ideal place to relax and enjoy life at a leisurely pace. Food is good... More

I wanted a small unspoilt Desert Island Paradise. Helengeli lived up to my expectations. Pure white sand beautiful clear sea a place to completely relax. It is extremely quiet especially during the day most of the guests go out on the boats to dive. The rooms are basic but adequate. The food is very good and plenty of choice. We... More

Maldives have become a very expensive playground and many resorts now cater to the ver rich and (in)famous. So Helengeli is a great place to go on a restricted budget. Snorkling ain't the greatest, but nice. Diving is good, the villas have seen better days, but have all one needs. Wifi is costly, food so-so but plentifull and service OK.... More

We flew with Emirates via Dubai arriving in Male at 8.30 am .The trip was uneventful except for some difficulty in booking seats at online checkin .Transit through immigration and customs was under 45 minutes but we...

Located on it's own island, Helengeli is a 'budget' travel destination int he maldives. Budget is taken lightly though b/c it doesn't cost $1K. Overall, this resort has just about everything you need. good service, decent food and all the relaxation you would need. The island is tiny and the beaches are small but there are not many people there... More

I emailed the hotel from their website to ask about prices/packages and got a response very quickly. The staff I communicated with basically planned my whole stay for me and laid out all of the costs. I haven't planned a vacation this easily in ages. I arrived at Helengeli around 12pm after a very enjoyable sea plane ride. The Helengeli... More

Landed after a miserable 10hr flight in MLE. First we got completely hit by the hot weather - the temperature itself wasn't the problem but the extremely high/humid air made it like a sauna! After immigration and the arrival at our travel agent desk we had to wait quite a long time at the Helengeli Desk - it wasn't a... More

Helengeli is a small laid back island in the North Male Atol, a short sea plane transfer away from Male. Service: amazing! The staff regularly call you by name, know your room number and are very friendly (in a none intrusive manner). They are very laid back and the whole island exudes a sense of well run calm. Perfect after... More

If you're new to tropical islands you might be amazed by islands in the Maldives. However, you can find much better for a fraction of the price in Thailand, Indonesia, or the Philippines. I chose Helengeli because I read that it had a great house reef and because it was less crowded. Sadly, the corals looked really damaged and there... More
